Up Close & Personal with Joe Goodman

10 May 2021 1:36 PM | Sandra Waldrop (Administrator)

Joe Goodman was the presenter at our May Breakfast Zoom meeting. Joe's lifelong love of publishing started in junior high in his journalism class, an early career with a large publishing house in NY and continued 19 years ago when he started Up Close & Person in Tucker.

In planning his magazine, Joe decided to use a Biographical/Autobiographical hook, something he had never seen with a publication. He began with a Tucker-focus, but realized the close connection Tucker had with Lilburn. Fourteen years ago he added a Lilburn addition to his offerings.

In 19 years, he has never lacked for an interesting person/story from the target communities for his magazine cover story. His subjects have included astronauts, a ghost writer of well known books, an Olympic athlete, a Freedom Rider and the organist for the Braves. His knowledge of so many interesting local residents has turned Joe into a very interesting person himself!

Every two months, Up Close & Person is mailed to 55,000 homes in the Tucker and Lilburn extended communities . His "pivot" during the pandemic has been to do combined Tucker/Lilburn issues. He has split the cover to show 2 different stories, one from Tucker and one from Lilburn and a group shot of 4 girls (2 from Tucker and 2 from Lilburn) describing their individual community projects.

Up Close & Personal does not have a website or public phone number. The best way to reach out to Joe Goodman is by email at content@upclosemarketing.com and you better put a worthy subject title so he opens it. If you want to market to Tucker and Lilburn, this is a great place for a print ad.
